I hope you all had a great day. It was a nice day here. My sister, Kay, had the family at her house for a pool party and cookout. It was fun. I haven't been to her house but a couple of times this summer. I used to go there a lot and relax by her pool, but we are both so busy now that neither of us gets very much time to relax.

Monday is behind us, and now we only have a four day work week. I sort of like starting the work week on a Tuesday because Tuesday is one of my 'lighter' days.

I hope you ALL have a GREAT week. Take care, and keep in touch.

HUGS
Pam

Hello Everyone,
Thank you for your comments on my blog of yesterday. THAT GUY did not show up tonight either, and the schedule of his workouts that was posted in the entry to our YMCA had been taken down. I guess he is finished with all of that. I never really knew all of the details. I was just told that he was doing a workout every other day or so one of the YMCAs in the area. There are 8 or so YMCAs, and the list showed the day and time that he would be at each location. My 5:30 class today was shown on the schedule with LIVE TV. That is where I got my information at first. Then I saw on his website showing the workouts that he would be nowhere today, but he would be at my Zumba class on Wednesday. That is where I got THAT information, and our YMCA backed it up. The two schedules were different, and neither of them were correct. Breakdown of communication, I guess.

Anyway, there were people who showed up at the class but not a lot, so it wasn't a big deal. I didn't plan on him being there, and neither did our YMCA. I rushed out to attend my son's football game. Our team was not as lucky this week. The team they played had twice as many athletes, and they were bigger and stronger. Our team still made there touchdowns even though they are all sophomores, and I am guessing the other team was mostly seniors. It was still fun; no one was hurt, and good sportsmanship was shown. Our team played well, they were just out-played by the larger and stronger team.

Rain is predicted for tomorrow, but it was also predicted for today. It didn't happen today, so we'll have to wait and see about tomorrow. Since I have NO CLASSES on Monday, I guess I should be hoping that we can have the races tomorrow. I am exhausted though from all of the hustle and bustle of this week, so a rest day would be good. I can rest on Monday though, since I will not be teaching anywhere.

I am out of here now. My day began at 5:30 AM this morning, and it is still going on, so I should get to bed soon. Have a GREAT WEEKEND! Take care, ALL!

HUGS
Pam

    He should have let people know he was not coming. It's rude.

Maybe your son's team will win next week.

It rained here this morning but didn't the rest of the day. We have a chance of rain every day for a while.

I hope you have a great weekend and holiday too.

Have a great weekend.

Hello Everyone, Thank you for responding to my last blog.

MRS_TOAD, I sort of chuckled when I read your response. The statement you made was "You always have such a positive attitude when plans change." Well...maybe in some cases, BUT when the news guy was a NO SHOW for my 12:15 Zumba class, I was pretty agitated. The reason for my agitation was mainly because I had accepted that he would be there on Friday evening, and I have been announcing for TWO WEEKS to ALL of my participants to be SURE to show up for the class. Some were going to try to take off work early in order to be there to support ME. OK, so it wasn't until this past Monday that I found out that the guy would NOT be there on Friday evening, but on Wednesday at noon. So, on Monday night I told the participants that he would not be there on Friday, so don't bother taking off work early or making arrangement for their small children (no nursery on Friday evenings) because he would be at my noon Wednesday class and not the Friday class.

Since I got the notice AFTER my Monday noon Zumba class was over and the participants had left the building, I went about notifying those participants to be SURE to be in class on Wednesday because of THAT GUY! Around 25 showed up, and my sister, Shelby, stayed at the Y from her 10:15 Silver Sneakers class in order to be there to watch THAT GUY participate in my class.

So when THAT DARNED GUY did NOT SHOW UP, I was pretty annoyed and a little embarrassed. Now I don't know if he intends to show up on Friday evening or not. If so, there won't be more than 2 or 3 participants there. Too BLASTED BAD!

I never cared whether he showed up at one of my classes or not, but since it was communication from HIS PEOPLE that said he would be there, I expected further communication from HIS PEOPLE notifying our Y that he would NOT be there. So now, I am NEGATIVE NELLIE towards THAT GUY and HIS PEOPLE.

emoticon I really don't imagine THAT GUY will lose any sleep over it though. Of course, I haven't lost any sleep over it either. My way of living my life has always been "If plans change, notify those who are involved in those plans." I have accepted that everyone does not live by those rules though, but I still don't have to like it. emoticon

HUGS to ALL and have a GREAT THURSDAY!

HUGS
Pam

    I am so sorry. That is an embarrassing situation for you. He was not professional when he had said that he would show up and didn't.

    I'm sorry about that rude (there's no emoticon for) jackass! Too bad if he shows up tomorrow. I can imagine how you felt, after making sure there would be a good turnout for his benefit. emoticon

I hope you go ahead and have a great day anyway!

    I just hate it when people are so . . . R-U-D-E! Sorry that happened, but you're right . . . if there's only 2-3 participants, too bad! They shoulda stuck to their plans.

Thank you all for your nice comments on my yesterday's blog.

MORTICIA, you and your husband put much love and care in Reekie's final resting place. He knows how much he was loved.

Oh, it really is OK about the news guy not coming to my class on Friday evening. I would rather have him at my Zumba class on Wednesday. This will be more fun because well...Zumba is more fun than the class that I teach on Friday evenings. PLUS the Zumba class is a large group, and the Friday evening class is very small. In addition, I can go to my son's football game now. So it all worked out in a way that is best for me.

We had a heavy rain for about 15 minutes late this afternoon. We sure needed it according to what I've heard. I really think that we 'needed' a lot more rain than what we got though. I see there is an 80% chance of rain over at the race track on Saturday, so that doesn't sound too promising for the races to go on. Of course, that could all change by Saturday.

Have a GREAT evening and a WONDERFUL Wednesday.

HUGS
Pam

    I'm glad you can get to the football game.

It's good that you got some of the rain you needed, but I hope it won't rain on Saturday.

We had our hottest day of the summer yesterday but I had chills and couldn't appreciate it!

Have a great day!
